Following the siren, you make your way to The Bridge. Your quarter leaders are engaged in heated discussion about the incoming asteroid. '503:45:21' flashes at you from various monitors. In order to find the spaceship parts it has been decided that you, the campers, are going to have to travel to the surface of the nearest planet to see if you can find anything that can be used to help us construct an escape pod to get home. However, The Lopez's original reconnaissance mission hasn't been entirely recalled by this disaster. If you come across any alien specimens on your travels, it is vital that you bring them back and establish them in a habitat in which they can thrive. Three cubic meters ought to do it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can the HHP DLC or Harvey's Island be used?
You're allowed to use either your own island, Harvey's Island or HHP houses.

Q. Do we have to use the exact colors of the gyroids shown here?
No, you can use any color variation of any of the specific gyroids shown above.

Q. Is there any other way I can show proof in my second screenshot if I don't have access to a 3x3 rug or the Island Designer app?
Placing down custom designs or digging holes works as well, as long as it's distinguishable that your design is 3x3.

You step on the moon for the first time. Your ship's broken and there's no way home. Looks like the rabbits actually do pound mochi on the moon. Strange rocks fly past. And small, moon-colored aliens dance around you in circles, clattering and singing strange songs. You're worried about what this means.
